You see how cool the Rubicon Assault Rifle looks?

My suggestion is to not use the High-Res version.
It looks less cool than the low res.

If you MUST have a High-Res weapon, just sharpen up the low-res version.

IMO, they should have just slightly overlayed the original rubi AR on the high res one... the new weapons are incredibly similar in shape to the old ones, but they seriously lack textures...

Well, I would hope they would be similar in shape. It was just a better resolution update for them. Plus, with all the better looking textures, etc, really grainy and pixelated weapons (Especially the AR) would just look out of place.

As far as "coolness", it's all a matter of opinion. I happen to like the high-res weapons much more than the original. Whatever works for ITS is your decision though Fish.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure forge can't open unimapped map files. Anvil also seems to have problems opening .shpA files, but changing the name to shapes.shp? (and the resource to shp??) should allow you to open them.

Go download Kurinn's High-Res Water off of Fireball. Your low-res liquid sucks! [MUp]

By the way Fish, the new AR looks great, kind've like an M1 Garand though maybe that's just the size of the picture.

Why is there a Energy X3 over the oxygen bar? Have you come up with another use for it?

Any details about what it will be used for, or are you just waiting to display it in the new beta?

The energy bar is the health bar. Blimey. It will be used as any ordinary health bar.
I made some artwork too!

So basicly the blue bar is your health and the red bar is your oxygen, or are you going to go like Halathon and have the blue bar as the shield energy and the red bar as your actual health?

You may want to put a link to your blog in your signature.
I see an update, and then at first I'm like "Alright!!"
And then I'm like "what page was the link?"

As far as what I've seen, you've got the environment down pat.
I sure do hope you put in some more "theatrical" experiences for each level to go along with the game play.

I remember the first time you meet the Assassin type Pfhor in Apotheosis. Apotheosis is an incomplete scenario, but that level was BAD-ASS.
The actual level itself had only what? Like 20 some total enemies? But it was so cool you didn't care.

Its not my project but I'd be sure to employ some special situation with a scenario title like "IN THE SHADOWS" for a couple levels.
There are other scenarios that employ "ominousnessness" to they're levels too.
